  • HIMYM finally ends (with Josh Radnor doing his own voice overs)

    After years of people saying, “‘How I Met Your Mother’ is still running? Really?”, show creators are officially putting the kibosh on a series that jumped the shark years ago. Yes, this is old news, but here’s the kicker: For the series’ final episode, Bob Saget is being booted as the narrator, to be replaced…

  • Judd Apatow’s awesomeness is finally recognized

    He may not have the storytelling strength of Steven Spielberg or the cinematic artistry of Terrence Malick. But Judd Apatow is finally getting the kudos he deserves as a fantastic director/screenwriter/everything else. The Writers Guild of America will be honoring Apatow at their Feb. 19 awards ceremony, with Kristin Wiig presenting the satirical director with…

  • Sarah Jessica Parker to replace Demi Moore in ‘Lovelace’

    Hey, remember Demi Moore? You know, the MILF who went all angsty-tween after her separation by huffing nitrous oxide and chilling with Disney lovechild Zac Ephron? Well, apparently directors aren’t so keen on her these days either. Moore reportedly dropped out of filming for “Lovelace,” a movie about the “Deep Throat” porn star Linda Lovelace,…

  • Adam Sandler further proves that he is an overgrown toddler

    …but in a good way. According to Reuter’s, Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison Productions, is set to produce a movie based on the board game Candy Land.

  • Jerry Seinfeld, for the Super Bowl (commercial) win!

    Jerry Seinfeld is in the running for my choice of best friend. Not only do I appreciate his reclusive response to Hollywood grandeur (ahh, woes of fandom), but he really just reminds me of all my funny Jewish boy friends. He’s got the jeans and sneakers look, the frizzy hair, and the droopy shouldered puppy…

  • Paula Abdul gets X-ed

    Looks like Simon Cowell has lost some love for his former “American Idol” co-host Paula Abdul. After personally recruiting her for the first season of “The X Factor,” Cowell let Abdul know her services would no longer be needed on the U.S. spin-off of the British reality show. And he sent the message through the…

  • Fran Drescher joins the league of foil-hat wearing crazies

    To all of you men who would slobber over Fran Drescher’s spandex-covered derriere during her heyday, I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news: The raven-haired Jewess is a total loony. I know I have a tendency to label many mid-nineties female sitcom stars as “crazy people,” but it is ALWAYS for good reason….

  • California synagogue convinces Mel Gibson that Jews are awesome

    Everyone knows Mel Gibson sucks. He gets insanely drunk, treats women like crap, and has been known to make an anti-Semitic remark or two. And while natural instinct would be to tar and feather the man, my mom always taught me that the best way to kill is with a two barrel shotgun kindness. So what’s…

  • Is Drew Barrymore converting???

    First we have Isla Fisher turning to the dark(er skinned semitic) side for love. Then comes along Ivanka Trump, opening her heart to Hashem. And now, Drew Barrymore also might be converting to Judaism for the love of a man! That’s right. According to the New York Daily News, Drew might soon be calling herself…
